Textured Toque // Design by Helen Gipson
Rich brown soil, after ploughing, slowly turns green as the crops grow, followed by the pale golden wheat ears standing tall against the wind. This simple design highlights the beauty of the yarn, with wheat motifs circling the hat in relief against an unfettered background.
